Birth Injury Causes and Liability

Birth injuries can result from negligence at any step of the labor and delivery process. Delivering a baby requires the attending physician’s and nurses’ complete dedication and focus throughout. Without this level of care, mistakes can be made, issues can go unaddressed, and injuries can result.

Birth injuries can be caused by:

  • Medication errors
  • Negligent aftercare
  • Premature birth
  • Birth trauma
  • Prolonged labor
  • Labor induction & pitocin errors
  • Doctor carelessness and inexperience
  • An absence of proper tools, equipment, and resources

In many cases, a negligent doctor is not solely responsible for causing a birth injury. A lack of oversight or guidance from their employer can contribute to malpractice, and often does. It is not uncommon for the hospital where an injured child was born or another greater healthcare organization as a whole to be held liable for negligence.

The negligence of other parties may have played a role in your child’s birth injury as well. It’s possible that a negligent pharmacist or the manufacturer of a defective drug or medical device can also be held liable. Our Atlanta birth injury legal team can investigate your case and hold all liable parties accountable.

Birth Injury Types

There are many different types of injuries that can result from negligence in the delivery room. Birth injuries commonly impact the brain, and contribute to limitations in cognitive ability and mobility. Birth injuries can also cause trauma to the body. For example, the misuse of forceps or other tools can cause permanent damage to muscles and bones.

We can assist you with birth injury cases involving injuries such as:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy
  • Forceps/vacuum extractor injuries
  • Traumatic birth injuries
  • Hemorrhage
  • Dystocia
  • Infections
  • Placental abruption
  • Preeclampsia

WHY YOU MAY BENEFIT FROM A DOCTOR IN YOUR COURTROOM

  • WE UNDERSTAND YOUR INJURIES, BECAUSE WE’VE LIKELY TREATED THEM.

    Most of our physician-attorneys are either current or past treating doctors in, collectively, a wide range of medical specialties. There is a good chance one or more of our physician attorneys have actually treated medical conditions similar to the ones from which you or your loved one now suffers. That translates into care and understanding as your Counselors, and know-how as your Advocates.

  • TIME- AND COST-SAVINGS FOR YOUR CASE

    Any honest medical malpractice attorney will tell you that one of the greatest expenses in a medical malpractice case is having to pay physician experts to study the details of the medical issues in your case and, if necessary, provide testimony at deposition and trial. While even our physician attorneys may also need to hire outside medical experts for your case, our medical know-how allows us to perform a significant amount of the medical analysis necessary for your case in-house which may translate into significant savings at the conclusion of your case.

  • RAPID RESPONSE WITH SOLID ANSWERS TO YOUR SERIOUS QUESTIONS REGARDING YOUR CASE

    Because we have in-house medical know-how, we can evaluate the medical questions in your case and provide answers without a lengthy wait. Our internal process involves getting the issues in your case quickly in front of the right physician attorney who, based on his or her medical experience and training, is most likely to have the answers you seek about whether you have a case and how we might help you get the compensation you deserve to help secure a brighter future for you and for your loved ones.
